Indulge in the extravagant pleasures of this opulent Burgundian style Chardonnay, which was barrel fermented and aged in French oak (80% new barrels) for 18-months, with full secondary malolactic fermentation sur lees for the first 9-months. Sourced exclusively from our Montebello Estate vineyard, it offers an abundance of riches, from its brilliant gold color and luscious aromas to its deep, layered flavors and round mouthfeel. An irresistible fragrance of crème brûlée, honeyed pineapple and exotic floral notes rises from the glass, yielding a complex palate of ripe tropical fruit, luxurious French vanilla and that distinctive mineral edge unique to the Montebello terroir, before culminating in a smooth buttery finish. Brimming with beautifully integrated flavors and a sumptuous texture, this sophisticated, multi-layered vintage will pair beautifully with creamy seafood pasta, grilled shellfish, fresh vegetables or a soft Brie cheese. And with the Northern California crab season in full swing, it's the perfect accompaniment to Dungeness crab with drawn butter. A white wine for the red wine connoisseur!
